I chose Arisbeth because we started our blogging journey about the same time and she has become one of my favorite buddies! She is super sweet and I cannot wait to meet her in Vegas at the TPT conference this summer!
Arisbeth was sweet enough to donate her Reaching for the Stars space unit. If you are looking for a great space unit, this is it ya’ll! It is jam packed with FABULOUSNESS!
This unit includes a great moon phases comprehension passage that fit perfectly into our reading block. We were able to get in a quick main idea and detail lesson and practice our text evidence skills. You can take a closer look in the pictures below.
We used this super cute foldable to write the definition of each phase. They used them as a reference throughout our study.
These really came in handy when we wrote our informational paragraphs. Rather than having them write a paragraph, I decided to let them type it. I completely turned them lose in the computer lab which is something I don’t do very often. They had to tell me one fact they learned about the moon, the 8 phase, and what one of the phases was. They didn’t make a rough draft, I didn’t edit anything. The only thing I helped them with was how to use Word. I take that back. I did tell them the first sentence had to start with “Did you know…” Is the spelling perfect? No! Are they kids friendly? Yes! And that is what I love about them. They worked their little hearts off typing these. We used Arisbeths super cute astronaut craft to help display them.
They did good huh?
Aren’t her moon activities fabulous?!? They are only a small part of this great unit. You have got to check it out! Would you like a FREEBIE from this unit? I just happen to have one. Click on the picture below or here to grab it.
